Sunlit Sunday





It's time to join Karen for Sunlit Sunday again.
These photos were taken after the recent storm on March 13th.  The day after the storm dawned bright and sunny so it was nice to see the contrast of the shadows on the snow.

I noticed the shadow of the bird feeder on the hook against the snow as well as the spruce tree shadow over the garden bench.

My favourite tree has a 'bowl' around it formed by the drifted snow.

Another maple tree with a 'bowl' formed around it's trunk.

The mourning doves found a nice sunny place to roost for the afternoon.  The snow is now melted off the shed.

The contrast of snow and sky ~ white and blue.

It snowed about an inch on Friday night and rained on Saturday.  I heard we received at least 40 cm. of snow in Thursday's storm.  Our area has received 290 cm. of snow this winter.  That is almost 115 inches of snow has fallen since it started snowing in December.
And it's all going to melt one of these days.

Have a wonderful Sunlit Sunday.  I hope you will visit 
My Little Home and Garden and join the party.

Blessings,

Pamela

  4. That's a lot of snow! I haven't seen the stats for our area but can say it snowed all day today again. When I first looked at the mourning doves I thought they looked cute until I saw all the droppings down the side. Hopefully a good rain will clean that mess up.

  5. 'All things bright and beautiful!' These are so lovely, with all that bright sunlight. Love the mourning doves - and the Canadian bird houses. These photos explain why we wear sunglasses in the wintertime!

  8. What beautiful photos, Pamela. I love the bright yellow door on the shed and the mourning doves sitting along the top. The only thing that could improve these photos would be crocuses popping through the snow! Cheryl

  11. Fresh snow is really very pretty . . . the sunshine and shadows help with the pretty too!
    You too have had record totals of snowfall this year . . . Surely it will all start winding down very soon!
    I hope you can enjoy a sunny, pleasant Sunday . . .

  12. That yellow door is so cheery! Those bowls around the trees are the first signs of melting...the drip was steady all day yesterday, but today winter has returned with below freezing temps and a brisk wind. As you say, the snow will go one day.

  14. I love the sunny yellow door on your shed, Pam! That would be a warm bright spot on your many snow-covered days this past winter. The snow I've shoveled this winter seems like a mere sprinkling compared to all that you've received over the past few months!

    You have some nice clear shadows with interesting shapes in your photos. The final shot makes makes the landscape feel a bit lonely, but I know your cozy home is nearby!

  17. Now that s a lot of snow. Ours has melted. The coming spring storms may have e snow, but it will melt away quickly. Today we will work in the yard. Have a nice week.

  18. The high snow counts worry me as thawing will bring flooding. Oh, Mother Nature.

It has been wonderful and sunny every day this week and a lot of our snow has melted and grass patches are forming . Birdies are feasting as are the critters at the feeders and birdies singing in the trees and hedges ! Spring is pushing through . Thanks for sharing ! Have a good day !

  21. Look at those gentle doves on the roof - a lovely picture of the sweetest no nonsense birds to visit the garden.
    All great sunshine and snow pics Pamela - can't believe your got so much snow this winter!
    We had a fun time at the St. Patrick's Day parade yesterday - and it was very warm, however a cold front coming through again tomorrow with a chance of more freezing rain!

    Loved all these pics - your captures of the snow scenes around your home this year have been really beautiful.
    Hugs - Mary

  22. Wow, that is a lot of snow! But you are still finding the beauty in it! Have a great week.

  23. We need a water pipeline to direct all that melting snow to southern California which is in a major drought. Our weather in already in the 80s on the coast. We don't usually have weather that hot.

    Your photos are lovely!

  24. Now that is tons of snow! Glad you're getting some sunshine sometimes! It will be interesting to see the melt.

  25. I love the yellow door on your shed- so cheery surrounded by snow!

  26. I lost count of the number of inches, but sure has been a lot this Winter. A bowl around the trees, nice. Lovely picture taking as always. I so love the little bird bench. Your doves roost, hum mine hang around the feeder and wait for the Blue Jays to shake the seed from the feeder they don't like. I've even found the doves nestled in the show, covered. Have a wonderful week.

  27. lovely series of photos ... the doves are enjoying the sun on the roof ... I love how Nature create those bowls around trees ... Hopefully the snow will slowly vanish as spring creeps in

  28. That is a lot of snow, Pamela!
    Hopefully Spring rains will melt it quickly...
    I love your yellow shed door-so cheery.
    And the photo of the beautiful blue sky against the smooth white snow.

  30. All the snow does make for interesting shadows. I especially like the maple tree picture with those long diagonal streaks. The yellow door on your shed is great too. So sunny. Wishing you a warmer week.

  31. I love the shadows on the snow Pamela! Your little shed is so sweet and the doves seem to be loving it! Hope it warms up soon.
    hugs,

  32. The Rocky Mountain regions of Colorado have had over 300 inches of snow this season--above average, but the area I live in in the foothills is below average this winter. March is supposed to be this area's snowiest month and we have not had that much --yet! Hope we don't get a few feet now that I said that --lol! The morning Doves look healthy despite all that snow. Do you have bird feeders up, Pamela?

  33. Oh Pamela, it's just snow much snow....sorry bad pun.

    That's just too much for man, or bird. Here's to it going away soon.

  37. I love that morning light dancing on the garden shed!

  38. Pamela, I can't even imagine that much snow. I think you must say you would like to see that just once, but once would probably be too much if you have to live in it. Your photos are stunning as usual and I love how the mourning doves are lined up on the roof. You must have been hearing a lovely seranade..Happy St. Patty's Day..Judy

  39. What a lovely idea Sunlit Sunday. I love your winter photo's. My goodness what a lot of snow you had. Winter did pass without any snow here. They must have given it all to your country
    Have a nice week.

  40. Really lovely sunlit photos. The yellow door on your shed is a bit of sunny cheer in the midst of the snow.

  41. You did get great shots of the sun/shadows against all that snow. It amazes me how much snow some areas have received this winter. Here not that much but what we had was more then enough for me.

  42. I know you're tired of the snow, but these are gorgeous photos! I love the bright yellow door! Great contrast with the white!
